Delay is irrelevant when watching videos because they're buffered. A 4k video stream at 60Hz is less than 50Mbit/s over a wireless connection. That's possible for any regular Wifi. It would be very easy to create a high quality wireless VR headset specifically for video streaming. Roight now I'm using my oculus go to do exactly that. Starting a video player on the device and then stream content from my PC via DLNA.

Of course interactive games have much higher requirements because they do things differently, but for those I wouldn't need a wireless connection in the first place.

Ok, i misunderstood you. You just want a VR device for video streaming only....I don't think that such a device exists, at all. I'm not even aware if there will be one. I assume the market for such a thing is not really there.

The standalone headsets fit the bill quite well but they're just too low quality because if it's not connected to a PC people don't even expect quality. I just want 4k or more with very high FOV. Probably not gonna happen anytime soon with standalones which are more focused on portability.

If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.
